TOP SHELF SELECTION:

Atalon 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon - Napa. "Atalon's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is fleshy and generous, with plenty of fruit and terrific overall balance, not to mention considerable early appeal. Hints of tobacco, dried herbs and incense add complexity on the finish. This is a very solid wine for the money."  92 Points Wine Enthusiast

WHITE WINE SELECTION:

Lois 2012 Grüner Veltliner - Austria. Lois (rhymes with “choice”) is purely aromatic and lively! Lovely aromas of fresh apples and citrus, this wine surprises on the palate with great spice components as well as exotic fruit and a refreshing acidity.  A great summer wine. 90 points, Wine & Spirits

Maggio 2012 Sauvignon Blanc - Lodi. The nose is light and delicate, pineapple, peach, sugary lemon with a floral edge.  This is a silky, tart, light bodied Sauvignon Blanc with tastes of tart grapefruit, slightly sweet pineapple and lemon. The mid palate brings a light brush of minerality, along with peach and kiwi. The acidity is well balanced.

446 2012 Chardonnay - Monterey. 446 Chardonnay exhibits appealing aromas of golden delicious apple, ripe apricot, pineapple and melon. Medium-bodied with a creamy mid-palate, this delightful wine offers flavors of peach and hints of toasty vanilla spice.

RED WINE SELECTION: (Flight #2)

Casillero Del Diablo 2012 Carmenere - Chili. This Carmenere is a deep, dark purple wine with aromas of dark plum, chocolate and hints of coffee and toasty oak. On the palate, there are notes of dark plums and spice, generously framed by toasty oak with a soft and well-structured mouth-filling texture.

Rosenblum 2011 Vinter’s Cuvee Syrah -  California. Black-cherry and currant aromas carry meaty soy notes and high spices in the nose. The intensity of the fruit comes through on the palate, with juicy layers of boysenberry, cassis, dark plum and a touch of anise. This smooth, succulent palate is wrapped up with grippy tannins that hold the flavors for a lengthy, satisfying finish.

1221 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Cuvee - 75% Sonoma, 25% Napa Valley. The aromas are reminiscent of black licorice and ripe black berries. The flavors carry the black fruits along with an ample amount of black currants, coffee, and a dusting of black pepper. The toasty oak is well integrated in this full-bodied wine. Quite delicious, silky, lush and multi-layered.

We stock 80 craft beers and our beer list is changes every week.
